So glad you could stop by to see the tag I created with the acrylic skin. If you missed yesterday’s post you can find the beginning info on acrylic skins here.
Here is today's tag-
And a close-up:
The entire background is stamped and colored with blended distress inks. The branches are stenciled with pre-colored Golden's Light Molding Paste that is for highly textured work and is to hold stiff peaks. I made by mixing distress ink with the paste on my craft sheet. After covering the branches with molding paste as usual I added texture to the leaves with a plastic serrated knife.
The bird a piece of the acrylic skin I shared yesterday and cut with a Memory Box die. The eye is added with enamel accents. I did not attach white paper to the back of the bird which makes the translucent parts not as clear as the background sightly shows through.
Supplies: Acrylic skin-see original post; Memory Box Die-bird; Stencil by Heidi Swapp; Ranger distress inks and archival ink, Stamps-STAMPlorations-mini mixed media backgrounds; Stamping Up-bark background.
Craft Stamper’s Take It, Make It Challenge This month’s challenge is to use any featured technique from a 2014 Craft Stamper magazine. I chose to try the technique to use acrylic paints and medium to create acrylic skins for use in mixed media/stamped crafts. The technique tutorial “Skinny Love” is created by Trish Latimer. It is the featured cover photo on the August 2014 magazine and the tutorial feature begins on page 38.
Thanks for stopping in...hope your weekend includes some creative fun!
